I was curious how the gender behaviour, the male role or female role, is known in mammals. Do mammals instinctively know how to do seduce the opposed sex or do the animals learn it from their parents/companion of the same sex (e.g. by imprinting)?
Some behavior can be traced to the genome. In Drosophila there are many interesting studies that show how genes and courtship behavior are related Example.
In mammals, the environmental component in determining courtship behavior is for sure, much more relevant than in Drosophila.
